Hip Hop Architect Michael Ford

On this episode of the Clever podcast, Amy Devers speaks to Michael Ford, the designer and activist named The Hip Hop Architect. Michael was born to a minister in Highland Park, Michigan. He was brought up curious and questioned the world around him to find a deeper truth. He found his passion for design and music at an early age and expanded it through the lens of hip-hop culture into a practice for architecture and design. This led to his establishment of the Hip Hop Architecture Camp®, a camp that positions hip hop culture as a catalyst for the introduction of architecture and design to underrepresented youth. He also works with some of hip hop’s biggest names while directing the design of the Universal Hip Hop Museum in the Bronx. Listen:
